Work it! See Celine Dion rap on 'Ellen'

Thank goodness for Ellen DeGeneres: She wants everybody to be their best — and that includes Celine Dion!

As she told the singer during a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Monday, "You sing these ballads all the time, and I want you to keep growing as an artist."

We're pretty sure Dion doesn't need more lessons, but OK, whatcha got?

How about some ... rap?

Yep: DeGeneres got us to both laugh and be amazed by asking Dion to launch into songs like Nelly's "Hot in Herre," Britney Spears' "Work B**ch," Missy Elliott's "Work It" and LMFAO (featuring Lil Jon)'s "Shots."

Of course, Dion sang the lyrics (with the piano playing behind her) with her usual deadpan aplomb, and naturally knocked it out of the park.

But maybe she's not so sure. "My career's gonna end tonight," she noted.

Actually, we think we'd buy a whole album of these remakes!
